The D Word

Whispered, in hushed tones.
Screamed, for the world to hear.
Where I am I going?
Where am I from?
My future, crumbling down in front of me.
Picking up the pieces, trying to build a life.
Why?
It didn't hit me till now.
It's over, done, gone.
I can't help but wonder,
is it my fault?
The signs, all there.
The anger, the uncontrollable anger.
Fear rolling in waves, so thick it stuck to my teeth.
Fear of him.
Of what he might do.
Of his tempers and moods.
And now it's over.
Finally I can breathe.
Or can I?
For all of this I still love, when I don't want to.
I still miss, when I should wish away.
Tears falling like raindrops, snaking their way down my cheeks.
I was his favorite.
Whispered, in hushed tones.
Screamed, for the world to hear.
The D word.
And my life came crumbling down...
